Carrot Boxes

I am beginning to run out of time (and steam) for Easter projects, but before I do, I want to share a couple of last minute projects.  These projects are fairly quick (especially compared to the egg boxes and decorative eggs I posted earlier this week).   If you are looking for a last minute project (or two) to complete before Easter one of these projects may be just what you are looking for.  I think these little carrot boxes would be adorable filled with foil covered candies and tucked into an Easter basket.

1.  I designed and cut out the shapes using my Silhouette Cameo.  This could also be done by hand with scissors or a craft knife.

2.  I embossed the paper for the carrot roots.

3.  I folded the hearts and tabs in half.  For each box, I glued two hearts together with the long tabs.

4.  I glued the carrot tops together and then glued two tops on each box.

 

5.  I folded down the tops of the carrot roots on each box and then folded them in.

6.  I tied the carrot tops together with a piece of ribbon (or glued a paper band around them (not shown)).

For two boxes I used:

  • Patterns (below)
  • Silhouette Machine, scissors, or craft knife
  • 1 Sheet orange (8.5 x 11) card stock
  • 1 Sheet green card stock
  • Glue stick
  • Embosser (optional)
  • Ribbon (optional)

Pattern for roots:

Pattern for leaves:

Note: I couldn’t get the files to post as .pdf or .studio files so I have posted them as .jpg files.  If you’d be willing to share advice regarding posting other types of files, I’d love to hear from you!
